A man who fled from a pickup after authorities opened fire on it Tuesday at Pinnacle Mountain has been identified and is being treated for unspecified injuries, police said.
Arkansas State Police say the man was identified as Mark Anthony Wyrick, 52, of North Little Rock, after he checked himself into a local hospital Tuesday night.
Police said Tuesday that they weren't sure whether the driver of the pickup was actually hit by the gunfire. There was no immediate confirmation whether Wyrick was shot or suffered another injury that required hospitalization. A state police spokesman said that information wasn't immediately available but that more details would be released later "as we have solid facts."
Spokesman Bill Sadler said in a statement that Wyrick would be arrested after being released from the hospital.
Two others, who were described Tuesday as passengers in the pickup, were arrested at the scene. Police identified them Wednesday as John Nutt, 46, of Little Rock and Martinaze Ingram, a Little Rock resident whose age wasn't known.
The incident started about 3:15 p.m., when park rangers heard glass breaking near the East Summit parking lot and spotted a black pickup that had been captured on surveillance in a previous car break-in at the park.
The rangers had their guns drawn when the truck moved to escape, striking one of the rangers in the arm. The other officer opened fire on the vehicle, which sped from the area and hit a tree.
The driver got out, ran to a park office, stole a park vehicle there and escaped in it, authorities said.
